    Default Billy Sharp

    They mentioned on radio 5 today that Billy Sharp is now the joint highest league goal scorer this century - joint with Rickie Lambert (Rooney is third).

    Not bad having two Saints in the top two. Still think Billy was a little hard done by not having a chance in the prem, having got us there.

    I reckon he was hard done by too. Perhaps the PL was a step too much but we will never know.

    Always liked Billy Sharp. Didn't let us down when he signed for us either.

    Would be delighted if he got a chance in the Prem -- Especially with Sheff Utd.

    Great lad and one of those players everyone wants to do well. Met him a couple of times and he is a really decent bloke. Personally I don't think he was up to it as a premier league player which is a shame but that said I think we should have kept him in our first season back, he would have been a decent option to bring on for 15 minutes if we needed a goal and to be blunt he would have contributed an awful lot more than Mayuka did, whose only memorable moment was being brought down to win a penalty in the home game v Villa when we were already 3-1 up, other than that he might as well never have played for us.

    Great achievement. He had a good impact during his time at Saints.

    He clearly wasn't PL level though - no room for sentiment. Essentially replaced by Jay Rod.

    Spoke to him the weekend we went up, when all the players were out around Bedford place. Top bloke, glad to see he's doing well at his boyhood club. His goals helped us get over the line.

    Billy Sharp made history as Sheffield United climbed up to third, courtesy of a 3-0 win at Wigan. The club captain’s 54th minute goal, a close-range finish set up by David McGoldrick – who had scored the first – made Sharp the highest goalscorer in English league football in the 21st century with 220 strikes, overtaking Rickie Lambert.

    I fail to see how he could have done worse for us than some of the dross we've had since Pele left.

    We let him go far too early / easily.

    Delighted the lad is enjoying his football and doing well. Expect him to hammer some past us next season.

    In what way was he "clearly" not good enough? He was never tried.

    Where “good” is defined as the best so far this century, in terms of goals. End.

    Why? Is he signing for Liverpool or Man City then

    .... actually went one ahead of RL tapping in a cross from David McGoldrick who scored 43 goals for us one season I seem to recall (no, not the first team - obviously).

    Hatrick tonight (and still over ten minutes to go as I type that!). I'm pleased for him too and do feel we let him go too early. His altruism is also a breath of fresh air in modern football. Good on him!

    He’s probably feeling a little flat now.

    Not one Premiership club has signed him so it wasn’t just us that thought he wasn’t up to it. Nothing wrong with being a quality Championship level player, which is what he is.
